Average place, food wasn't good. Unhelpful and miserable staff, and particulary didn't like being asked to write a review. I came on holiday to get away from my worries not listen to a manager complain about his own boss and plead for a good review to be written. Seemed a bit desperate. On the upside drinks were nice

We arrived at Ko Phangan in desperate need of a beverage and some WIFI, to look for accomodation. The staff were immense. 2 stood out in particular, Apple and Nyi. Both made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much bother. Definitely worth a visit!

As soon as we docked in Koh Phangan this lovely bar was staring right at us, so we thought it would be rude not to go in. We were welcomed by the friendliest of bar managers who was very up on his knowledge of the island and a great laugh. On some occasions he even joined us for a drink.... More

Absolutely the highlight of my Thailand trip so far, sometimes all you need is a person to take the time out to help show you the ropes on a trip! The manager here did just that! Complimentary maps given on arrival with great explanation of where's good to go on the island! Great drink prices and deals if you're partying!... More

Absolutely loved this bar, staff were so friendly and attentive! NeNe, the bar tender from Myanmar was the coolest guy, loved chatting to him and hearing his story! His english was so good too, really impressed! Just wish we could have stayed in Thong Sala longer so we could spend more time here!

Upon arriving on the island it was a bit of a comedown from samui! However the manager helped us settle right in and approached us with a map and passed on valuable advice, going again for a few evening beers
